I love to create little treat bags as party favors, for school parties, and to give as gifts. Today I am going to show you how to make these fun Halloween treat envelopes. You can create them in just a few minutes using the 1-2-3 Punch Board. The punch board makes it so easy to create envelopes, bows, and boxes in a snap. I love that you can use any paper you want to customize it to your party decor.

- 1-2-3 Punch Board
- Polka Dot Paper
- Sticky Thumb Adhesive
- Black and White Twine
- Evolution Advanced
- We R Phrase Strips Embossing Folders
To start with I created an envelope using the 1-2-3 Punch Board. I created an envelope that would fit a 3” x 4” card. This is the perfect size to add some small candies or other little trinkets.
Adhere three of the four sides, leaving one of the short ends open. This will make a vertical envelope rather than a traditional horizontal one.
Using the Evolution Advanced, I added a “BOO!” sentiment to each envelope at the bottom edge using my embossing folder.
Tie some black twine around the envelope towards the top. I looped the twine around the bag several times and then tied it in a knot.
To make the envelope a little more festive I created some polka dot bows using the 1-2-3 Punch Board. I made them the smallest size possible. Start by trimming your paper.
Use the 1-2-3 punch board to punch the strips to create the bow.
I added the bow to the envelope over the twine with some adhesive.
These would be easy treat bags to create for a class Halloween party or as party favors. They are perfect for filling with some delicious Halloween snack mix. You can use this technique to create any kind of treat envelope for any holiday!
